One of London's Best Private
A Level Colleges

Ashbourne is one of many private sixth form colleges in London, specialising in pre-university education at A level and GCSE. Following the university ethos, the college combines informality and an adult approach to education, at both A level and GCSE, with a disciplined system where each student's work is carefully monitored.

It aims to establish strong academic foundations, achieve outstanding examination results and engender a mature and independent attitude vital for taking advantage of life's opportunities.

Founded in 1981, Ashbourne independent (private) sixth form college is situated in the very heart of Kensington, London. The college is fully co-educational and considers its primary strength to be its small size, coupled with its friendly and caring approach. No student is allowed to become lost in the crowd.

All courses, whether at A level or GCSE, are organised around a tutorial system in teaching groups of no more than 10 students. This enables tutors to engage directly with each individual.

No assumptions are made about a student's previous knowledge, and understanding is established in a step-by-step manner. The teaching style aims to be positive, encouraging and sympathetic to the challenges which students encounter.
